Katherine Sadleir, Ph.D.

Research Associate Professor, Neurology, Northwestern University

Dr. Katherine Sadleir completed her Ph.D. at the University of Chicago, then did post-doctoral work in the lab of Dr. Robert Vassar at Northwestern University.  Her work has focused on understanding the toxic nature of the immediate plaque environment, specifically the relationships between amyloid plaque deposition, dystrophic neurite development, and microglial and astrocyte activation. In addition, she is studying how dystrophic neurites may link amyloid deposition to tau spreading.
